Injury News: Justin Hardee out 4-6 weeks, headed to IR

Another injury blow for the Jets:

With Hardee out, the Jets will likely employ Irvin Charles and Brandin Echols as the primary punt gunners, although Echols is out on Sunday so they will probably elevate Craig James to undertake this role. Hardee isn't just a punt gunner though, he also makes valuable contributions as a blocker, rushing kicks and on kickoff coverage.

The Jets will have an open roster spot which they may use to activate an offensive lineman now.
